Mollymauk Tealeaf Index

In mid April 2018, I lost my mind. I’d recently

to myself that I hadn’t written anything about Critical Role Campaign 2 since it started, and maybe I actually had nothing to say. And then Ep014 happened, and Molly dumped a lot of his backstory. Around this time I was also hit with a very debilitating bout of pain that confined me to bed for two weeks. I had very little to do except turn over analyze everything we got. As I started getting better, I vowed to thoroughly analyze it.

This started with transcribing it, which ended up taking three weeks and 36 pages to do. Along the way I deciphered a sentence Taliesin mumbled under Matt that started to really click everything into place. This was the first in a series of observations and additional transcripts that started dribbling out as I continued to work on the main analysis. To say that it got a bit out of hand would be a gross understatement. Over the course of all of Campaign 1, I wrote approximately 17 article (transcripts &/or analysis) on Percy. From April 2018 to May 2018 when I’m writing this, I have written 11 articles on Molly, and am nearing completion of that one Ep014 analysis that will now be a 7-part series. Apparently this is my life now.

So here is my collection of everything I’ve written about Molly. I’ll try to keep this updated as I add things. Most transcripts also include analysis and will have entries in both sections with the same article name.

If you enjoy this content, consider buying me a coffee so I can make more of it. I’m disabled and anything I supplement my income with helps.
